10 THE UNIVERSITY OF UDINE Our Vision: University as a strategic institution for social, cultural and economic development of the region Innovative knowledge and human capital have become strategic resources for sustainable economic growth Our three-fold mission: – higher education – the human capital factory – research – the knowledge factory – service to our local community – the technology transfer and regional development factory

11 THE UNIVERSITY OF UDINE Key actions: towards students: courses targeted to innovative fields and emerging professions – development of entrepreneurial skills – foster mobility and internationalization – multidisciplinary formation towards the regional economic system : –foster Academia-Industry dialogue – synchronize significant part of research and teaching to their vocations and needs. Is there still a distinction between pure and applied research? Researchers not educated solely for an academic career. –promote technological innovation transfering through Technology Parks – Knowledge Districts – Industrial Liason Offices – Incubators – Industry- Academia mixed Laboratories –direct research activity towards patents development and creation of spin off enterprises

12 THE UNIVERSITY OF UDINE the numbers 10 schools (facoltà) 17350 students 671 research and teaching staff 454 non teaching staff 44 lauree triennali (bachelor degrees) 43 laurea specialistica (master degrees) 19 PhD Schools 28 master universitario degrees 28 departments 2579 students graduated in the academic year 2001-2002 32 specialization schools a distributed campus 8 sites (Udine, Pordenone, Gorizia, Cormons, Gemona, Mestre, Tarcento,Tolomezzo) (+1 Hyderabad ?) 1720 MoUs with enterprises for internship activities Over 20.000 people altogehter involved

14 B.M.BIRLA SCIENCE CENTRE – HYDERABAD UNIVERSITY OF UDINE JOINT INITIATIVE IN INFORMATION SCIENCES AND APPLICABLE MATHEMATICS PhD Programme in Informatics and Applicable mathematics started in 2002, currently 6 students involved in the areas of Semantics, Virtual Reality Modeling, Self-organized Neural Networks, Data Acqusition and on-line processing Internationalized Master Universitario Degree in Information Technology started in the academic year 02-03, 9 students involved in each of the 2 editions. Summer Schools on New Perspectives in Informatics started in 2000, 20 participants in each of the 5 editions Indo-italian Workshop on IT: Education, Research and Technology Transfer started in 2002, 30 participants in each of the three editions The latter two actions were carried out thanks to the support of the Italian Embassy in New Delhi

15 B.M.BIRLA SCIENCE CENTRE – HYDERABAD UNIVERSITY OF UDINE JOINT INITIATIVE IN INFORMATION SCIENCES AND APPLICABLE MATHEMATICS The initiative capitalized on the impact of the EU project: Europe and India Past Present and Future (EU-India Economic Cross Cultural Programme) 1999-2001 partners: L.P. Tessitori Soc. Ind. Udine, B.M. Birla Science Centre, CISM Udine, OPFZ Arsenal Vienna, Udine University Udine University is currently leading another EU project: ICT for EU-India Cross-cultural dissemination 2004-2006 partners: B.M. Birla Science Centre, Univesities of Udine, Genoa and Valencia

16 PERSPECTIVES THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR APPLICABLE MATHEMATICS AND INFORMATION SCIENCES The Institute will have two branches, one in Hyderabad and one in Udine. Our vision: A.P. is one of the worlds emerging states in High-tech and IT. Conceiving Informatics as the general science of problem-solving and not merely as a technological tool, it can play the role of a lingua franca, an interdisciplinary medium for cross-cultural dialogue between Italy and A.P. The Mission of the Institute is to foster and strengthen current joint education and research programmes and to provide a platform for Industry-Academia interaction and technology transfer between Italy and India.

52 A case for Verification and Validation Life, environment or business critical software applications Digital woes: e.g. Y2K, Ariane, Patriot failures, Pentium Bug, bugs in mass produced software or widely distributed software Rigorous validation using logic based formal methods

53 A case for non-technological skills in IT-enabled activities Before hardware innovation we need innovation in mentality and consequently in the software design Simplification, reorganization, reengineering, reinventing Goal is bridging distance, non-hierarchical structures, interactive Standards, codes in Udine we are (preparing to) form such human, social, design skills
